Policy on exercising voting rights
As a management company subject to the chapter 15 of the Law of 2010 on UCIs, BLI has implemented an adequate and effective strategy for determining when and how voting rights attached to the portfolio securities held by its UCITS are exercised for the sole benefit of the UCITS and the share/unitholders.
The strategy referred to above sets forth the measures and procedures established by BLI in the following areas:
- monitoring relevant corporate events;
- ensuring that the exercise of voting rights is in accordance with the investment objectives and policy of the relevant UCITS managed by BLI; and
- preventing or managing any conflicts of interest arising from the exercise of voting rights.
For each UCITS managed by BLI, it has appointed a specialised service provider (the “Proxy Voting Advisor”) in charge of (i) the provision of voting recommendations, and (ii) the execution of such decisions.
In accordance with its internal policies and procedures, BLI has established monitoring processes in order to control the activities of the Proxy Voting Advisor.
Details of the voting right policy of BLI are available upon request.
The policy on exercising voting rights linked to instruments held in portfolios managed by BLI - Banque de Luxembourg Investments is available free of charge for investors and on request:

The remuneration policy of BLI - Banque de Luxembourg Investments is based on that in force at its parent company, Banque de Luxembourg, and complies with the regulatory provisions and the values with which Banque de Luxembourg and BLI - Banque de Luxembourg Investments identify over the long term.
BLI - Banque de Luxembourg Investments respects an appropriate balance between the fixed and variable components of total remuneration. The fixed component represents a sufficiently major proportion of the total remuneration so that the policy can be exercised with complete freedom regarding the variable components, especially the option not to pay any variable component. BLI - Banque de Luxembourg Investments reserves the right to revoke a variable remuneration award if it considers that this was awarded under conditions of improper conduct.
An annual appraisal by management is based on qualitative criteria rather than quantitative criteria. Where quantitative criteria are taken into account, these are expressed and appraised specifically in relation to the achievement of collective targets. This approach is intended to strengthen the harmony of the working environment and best preserve the interests of clients.
Banque de Luxembourg’s management charter is applied at BLI - Banque de Luxembourg Investments and covers the issue of diversity, particularly equal opportunities for men and women and the prevention of wage discrimination.
Details of the current remuneration policy, including a description of the way in which remuneration and benefits are calculated, the identity of the persons responsible for the award of remuneration and benefits and the composition of the remuneration committee, are available to investors free of charge on request:
